Notes:
Honorable Mention All-ACC performer as a returner in 2008 despite having his season cut short because of a serious right knee injury...Served largely as a returner during his career at UNC, although he did show some positive flashes as a receiver last year...Weighs in at only 185 pounds but is very strong for his size...Gets off the ball quickly and does run fairly well, although it remains to be seen if the knee injury cut down on his speed...Is able to catch high passes in traffic...Reliable hands...Will likely be drafted by a team in need of a kickoff and/or punt returner, as he can serve both roles...Still needs work in regard to his route running, but he can certainly contribute at the receiver position.
